my name is wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God their is no greater Job then to serve our Soveriegn God. Now that the introduction is out the way lets get in to the third chapter of Job, I have been waiting all weekend for this.
Job Chapter 3
After Jobs friends sat in silence with him Job cursed the day he was born He saiad:
May the day of my birth perish
and the night it was said a boy is born
that day may it turn to darkness ;
may God above not care about it
may no light shine upon it.
May darkness and deep shadow claim it once more;
may a cloud settle over it;
my blackness overwhelm it’s light.
That night -may thick darkness seize it;
may it not be included among the days of the year
nor be entered in any of the months.
Have you ever been going through something serious in your life that you curse the day you were born, wish that the day never happen. That’s a pain that I couldn’t ever imagine. An emptiness as if your heart had been ripped out of your chest.
May the night be barren;
may no shout of oy heard in it.
May those who curse days curse that day.
those who are ready rouse Leviathan.
May it’s morning stars become dark;
may it wait for daylight in vain
and not see the first rays of dawn,
for it did not shut the doors of the womb on me
to hide trouble from my eyes.
O’God, to be in so much pain, my Lord to say you wish those doors of the womb shut on you, and your birthday a day of darkness. Not to be able to rejoice in the day but to wish a curse on the day you were born.
Why did I not perish at birth,
and Die as I came from the womb?
why were there knees to recieve me]
and breast that I might be nursed?
for now I would be lying down in peace;
I would be a sleep and at rest
with kings and counselors of the earth,
who built for themselves places now lying in ruins.
with rulers who had gold,
who filled their houses with silver.
or why was I not hidden in the ground like a stillborn child.
like an infant who never saw the light of day?
There the wicked cease from turmoil,
and there the weary are at rest.
Captives also enjoy their ease;
They no longer hear the slave driver’s shout.
The small and the great are there,
And the slave is freed from his master.
Why is light given to those in misery,
and life to the bitter soul.
To those who long for death that does not come,
Who search for it more than for hidden treasure,
who are filled with gladness and rejoice when they reach the grave?
Why is life given to a man whose way is hidden,
Whom God has hedged in?
For sighing comes to me instead of food; my groans pour out like water.
What I feared has come upon me;
What I dreaded has happened to me.
I have no peace, no quietness;
I have no rest, but turmoil.
I didn’t want to paraphrase this chapter what is said is very Important, for those who suffer with depression and loneliness this chapter may be for you.
You are not alone in what you are experiencing, In pain with his greatest fears coming to past Job was living in it and through it.
Did you get that part living in it, he may be cursing the day he was born but God saw fit for him to still be breathing which means there is away out.
As long as you are breathing there is away for God to work it out. For you, I’m praying that you find an understanding in this chapter please feel free to read on to chapter 4. God is on the otherside of despair. God bless you.
Now for the Important part, if you are looking for salvation Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans10:9 and confess with your mouth and believe with your heart that Jesus died on the cross and God raised him from the dead you will be saved. open the door to a wonderful relationship with our Sovereign God.
God bless you
